Binghamton University welcomed in the semester with a big new addition.
Students and staff experienced the first day of classes today at the new Pharmacy School located at 96 Corliss Ave in Johnson City.
The facility is filled with top of the line equipment so students get hands on, real world experiences.
Students have resources at their fingertips whether it is the lab rooms, automated dispensaries, or colorful reading room.
Dean of the Pharmacy School, Gloria Meredith says that the students will be more than prepared when seeking a job in the health field.
“They learn some of the top notch equipment that they’re going to be dealing with when they are out in the real world. We have equipped our labs, our teaching labs, and our research labs with really top notch equipment for them to learn on,” Meredith said.
The school will be working closely alongside SUNY Broome’s nursing program as well as the local hospitals including UHS and Lourdes.
The program currently has 85 students and Meredith hopes that the new updated building will help produce some of the best pharmacists in the country.
